Video: Rory McIlroy hits spectator in the head with errant drive

Rory McIlroy was cruising along at three-under par through the first 14 holes of his opening British Open round when he momentarily became derailed by an errant tee shot on 15. The drive "nearly decapitated" a spectator before careening to an unplayable lie. McIlory was forced to re-tee, eventually taking a double-bogey 6 on the hole. He recovered nicely, however, birdieing two of his last three holes to finish at 3-under 67 on the day.
